She has the perfect messy hair to go with her “messy hair don’t care” shirt. I love the half sleeves too. Half sleeves are so cute! I almost did this shirt with black words, but I’m so glad I did blue. It looks great with blue over the yellow stripes. If you are sewing stripes this is how to match stripes.
Here’s Henry’s moon shirt that he painted. He is SO proud of it and tells everyone that he made it. He’s also wearing his superhero mask on his head. He’s always wearing some sort of superhero thing.
Their relationship in a nutshell. Henry is either poking or loving her, and she is either loving or hating it. I see this relationship lasting for the rest of their childhood.
I also finished a bear face shirt. It’s very simple, but has great impact. I love the bright, blue color. I shrunk down an adult shirt and reused all the hems.
I also shrunk another adult shirt for Henry. For some reason he calls it his “worker” shirt.
Lastly I made a sailor shirt. I fabric printed a turquoise whale and then a whole bunch of waves. I used a light blue interlock for the front and sleeves. Then I used a navy jersey for the back and neckband and a striped jersey for the other sleeve. It’s a little crazy with all the different pieces, but I love the whole.
I’ve just started using tags on the last couple of shirts. They say, “Handmade with love by Mommy.” I wanted to have a nice touch in case any of these last to another generation. And then I have a spot to write the size on.
I’m struggling figuring out how to sew them in because the stitching shows up on the back. I’d attach it just to the seam allowance at the neckline or at the side seam, but Henry gets irritated by stuff like that so easily. He’s lucky he mostly wears mommy made clothes because they don’t have tags!
